Captain Jack

This happened back in October, but I thought it was so delightful, I wanted to share it. So click on the link and watch the video:

Hollywood star Johnny Depp made a surprise appearance at a school assembly in south London after one of the children wrote to him with an invitation.

Beatrice, nine, sent a letter to the actor asking for piracy lessons to help lead a mutiny against the teachers.

He astonished pupils at the school in Greenwich by agreeing to visit them as Pirates of the Caribbean character Captain Jack Sparrow.

Captain for dark mornings

Laura Nyro:

You’ve got to have friends

Isn’t that nice?

Gov. Chris Christie’s back must be feeling pretty good.

The Auditor has learned that when a spot opened on the state Board of Chiropractic Examiners, Christie chose someone he knows well: his personal chiropractor, David Allen.

Allen has since been confirmed. But the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is tasked with vetting candidates for various boards and commissions, didn’t know Allen had the governor as a client.

“I guess in the interests of full disclosure, the governor could have told us,” said Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Nicholas Scutari (D-Union). “Why not? He got his personal driver on the parole board,” referring to Christie’s campaign driver, Allen Delvento, who earns $116,500 for a spot on the parole board.

It’s going to take some time

Carole King:

Heh

Mike Luckovich:

Ireland

So all those nice American firms who moved to Ireland because of low taxes have ended up bankrupting the country, and now it’s the duty of Irish citizens to further beggar themselves so that we can avoid the ultimate horror of (gasp!) asking American corporations to pay more money!

Take a close look at this cycle, because that’s where we are now.

Morning yearning

Ben Harper:

Just like this train

Joni Mitchell:

Our town

While listening to this, I started thinking about how our country is changing. Iris Demint:
